2012 Vegetable shares

I didn't start taking pictures until the  fifth week however I did keep a record of what we put in the  shares.  This is the first year I attempted to record our share with pictures.  However I did record in writing what was in the shares.  That record can be found on our webpage.
These pictures are of our two person share and sometimes the fruit share has been included.  I've received comments wondering if the later weeks are for a smaller share or is it just my picture taking. The answer is these are all two person shares. Actually, if anything, the later weeks were larger than the first weeks simply because of the nature of what comes into season around here so it must be my picture taking.  Sorry about that.
